Yes, I agree, they did move differenlty...yet I bet you they never thought about moving they just moved. I miss nothing.
How do you teach your people to make "correct feeling?" if not by trained thought?
If people "Just move" at day one....they will still be moving the same way on day 980.
I am quite sure, in fact I will bet on it, that there is a mind/body connection to developing your state of "Correct feeling."
You are missing something, at least in a classical Budo sense. You're missing the meaning of mushin...no thought.... It is meant to be a trained mind/body.

Now, that said.
At high speed and under stress, it is the person with the engaged mind who will be controlling and leading the other.
